When love dies episode 19
”…So that’s how it happened and the reason I kept it a secret” I said ,feeling a painful heart wrench.
”Ok Mr. Gabriel ‘ Dami said ” I’ll talk to you later. plea-se you can leave now’
Why the sudden change, Dami? I asked.
‘Why the sudden formal tone?
‘Mr. Egedege’ She said ” plea-se dont let it get any worse than this. I said, I will call you later”
She made several signs with her head, eyes and even her ton-gue. I couldnt fathom what she meant.
It was as if she was saying ” Go now, plea-se, I’ll call you later. Lets just talk some other time”
‘ whatever ! I thought she was insane. We had to iron things out there and then.
‘ So is that it? ‘ I said’ You’ll just walk me out ,out of your life. Out of Funmi’s life. Without explanation’
”We are done talking here. ‘ She said ‘ Dont let me call security’
Again ,her eyes betrayed her words.
I glanced briefly at Kemi. She was rather perplexed than lost in thoughts. A single word did not see the daylight out of her mouth.
I left the two women, opened the door without second thoughts and ban-ged it behind me.
All the while I thought things were un-der control. Guessing now, that I had been wrong.
She was such an ingrate. A manipulative witch.
The good times, I spent with Funmi , flashed in my face. My grown affection for the little girl.
**—– ”The best gift you gave me is you, thank you for coming. Daddy”
” I promise you . I will never leave again ” I said to her.
” Promise?…..yeah! I love you daddy..—–*
At first ,it was all a joke, but now I knew I lost the game. The un-derdog won with high odds at stake.
My family was near dil@pidation and my relationsh!pwith Funmi will also suffer.
I c@m£ home early. Tucked myself into the couch and waited for a miracle.
I dialed Tayo’s number. The pla-yback tune of Flavour’s : Power to win, helped calm my storm.
” Man whats up? I said.
” Just finished a deal with Kay Constructions…I’m on my way home’ Tayo’s voice said.
” Bro, I’m back to square one’ I said.
” Seriously? How did that happen.?
‘Tayo, the chick blew my cover- I never knew she would have me investigated”
He kept on with his long list of advices, after which he admonished me to admit reality .
” Now you have to focus all your efforts on your marriage, with Katherine’
‘Ayo?- Its not going to be easy” I said ”besides–”
”There is no sides here. You ‘re the man. She will un-derstand, just sweet-talk her into it, She nee-ds alot from you” He said again.
” Kate is different–‘
”Listen to me G,’ He cut in again, ” She is still your wife. Its a chance to make things right–”
‘ So I should tell her the truth? I asked.
He heaved a sigh of relief then continued ” Well , thats a wrong turn… Dont bail the cat yet, in time it will escape”
‘ Besides now, you haven’t been unfaithful, have you? He asked.
The day weared away as the sun k!$$£d the earth goodnight, with its yellow rays setting at the far west.
Kate was not yet back, neither was David.
I sat near the dinning table, glancing at the mouth watering food I had prepared.
I manipulated the urgency and made it worth while.
I waited. Then my phone rang.
It was Maxwell on the other end.
” Bad news, bro! ‘ He said.
” I’ve had quite enough doze since last night’ I said ‘ drop the bomb. Whats it Max?
” Its Kate— ”
I bec@m£ frantic. Stood up immediately, nearly ran mad. What happened to Kate?*
” What do you mean? – Kate? Did anything happen to her?
I suddenly realised that my heart pace trippled, and shock waves travelled down my spine.
” Ma Nkechi, just got rushed to the hospital” He said.
” Why? What happened to Mother.’ I asked ‘ And why did Kate call you first ,instead of me?
It was a strange feeling, and it ate me up internally.
”well I’m not in the position to answer’ He said ” maybe her mind randomly selected who to call first. We are on the same team ,arent we?
” OK, what about David?
” He is with his mother, at the hospital’ Maxwell said.
” I’m on my way. Text me the address”
I zoomed off, collecting my wallet and keys to the car Tayo gave me.
I got it at a second hand price, and would pay on interval rate. It was not too flashy, but it served its purpose.
Suddenly I my phone beeped again.
Indeed today, was full of wonders and painfull uncertainties.
The devil was really a fierce master in the act of temptation.
I pushed the message view bu-tton . A text from Dami.
* :
plea-se meet up with me, I want us to iron things out. I’m sorry for shouting at you.
I want to un-derstand you more.
Dont leave us now, Funmi and I nee-d you,…. k!sses and hvgs, with Love. *
I was literally baked and at crossed roads.
My arms grasped the wheel. I paused and
undecided on whom to go to:
Kate who didnt bother to call me or Funmi and her mysterious witch of a mother?
